Clare Castle – From the Volunteers 1

Above is an interview with Stephen and Alexander Weston about the medieval floor tile found in trench D on Day 1 of the Clare Castle excavation in Clare Country Park.

Janet Strellis gives an account of the finds in Trench A below.

“I’m working on a pit which is by the main path and very open to passers by and the regular rain showers. The hardest part was removing the turf which had to be cut underneath and then rolled back. Once that was done it’s been very intersting. From just one day we have found a bone, a couple of animal teeth. There is also lots of iron debris and coal from the old railway and weighbridge that ran nearby. The oddest find has been a leg probably only two inches long, from a little doll.”
